The Man You Want To Be

My son
I can probably never teach you
Because it is your own quest
Through love, through grief, through light and darkness
You shall become the man you want to be

And as you wander through the foggy mist
You will be pushed over, lead astray and forced to fight
But as you rise and rise again
Lambs shall become lions
And you the man you want to be

I will never stop you because your heart is free
I will never judge your judgement
But I will guide you if you want me to
And as you trip upon stones
I will always stand by you smiling

I will always love you
Even when my body has decomposed
And my soul has vanquished
Always know thyself my son
And you shall become the man you want to be

this is amazing . I think it's great when a parent takes time to write something special for their children

I'm actually 18. But if I have a boy some day, I'll read it to him :) But thanks for the kind words :)
